About the App
The explore button takes you to the full list of participating locations from the homescreen. You can switch to Map View which features a map the area and has pins indicating the locations where you can collect points. By clicking on each pin on the map, you can find more information about the location.
All locations on Taste Comox Valley are assigned 10 points, which can be collected when you are within GPS range of a location and have a network connection. Pushing the “Collect Points” button while physically visiting a location will add the location’s points to your point total. To keep earning points, explore more locations and/or visit again. You can track your point total on the Your Account page.
Once you collect enough points, those points can be redeemed for exclusive discounts and promotions at participating Rewards locations, which are indicated in the app. Select the place where you would like to redeem your reward. Hitting the “Redeem Rewards” button while physically at a Rewards location will bring up a key pad for the redemption code, which can be provided by the staff/owner. Enter the code to deduct points from your total in exchange for that location’s reward. You must have internet access, or data enabled on your smartphone, in order to redeem points.
Visit. Collect. Redeem.
